THERE is no denying that 2017 was a pretty good year to be a Ford fan.

The Supercars Drivers’ Championship may have proved elusive, but 16 race wins, 20 pole positions, the Teams’ Championship, the Manufacturers’ Championship and the Pirtek Enduro Cup meant there were plenty of reasons for the Blue Oval brigade to cheer.

Frenchman Cyril Abiteboul is leaving Renault, where he was Formula One team principal, the company announced on Monday in a press release.

Laurent Rossi, director of strategy and business development for Renault, will take over the motor sports unit which will be rebranded Alpine.

The Formula One team, which is based in Enstone in England, will replace its predominantly yellow livery with the red, white and blue of the French flag.

That leaves the responsibility for running the F1 team open and its executive director, the Franco-Polish Marcin Budkowski, could take over the reins.

Ricciardo has been on holiday in the United States during the season break, taking time off before he gets back behind the wheel this year in new colours.

It seems though that wherever he goes, Ricciardo is taking his humour along with him and some of his fans fell for his latest gag.
